    Summary

    “Joe, don’t forget, Nile’s coming over at 8 tonight for dinner, so we’ll have to be back at least an hour before that.”

    “I don’t know, tesoro, forgetting is kind of what I do best now,” Joe quipped from the couch.

    Nicky stuck his head out of the kitchen testily. “Still not funny, you asshole.”

    It has been several months since that fateful day at the clinic, and Joe could tell he was getting worse. He didn’t feel it, exactly; the Razelon was helping, and Dr. Shukla had added an antidepressant to his prescription to ward off the vague sense of dread and loss that sometimes settled in his chest.

    No, Joe could tell he was getting worse because of Nicky.

    Summary

    "Do you ever wish it had been me Andromache? That I was the one in the iron coffin? Would it have been better?"

    Summary

    Joe leaned forward, leaving inches between them as he whispered back, “You know, I would definitely like to pick up from where we were interrupted. What I said about kissing you is the definite truth. You thrill me beyond compare.”

    Summary

    Towards the bottom of the list, a short title stood out: “GOD.” Curious, Nile skimmed the description: By drawing on sources from antiquity to the present day, from philosophy to poetry, from mysticism to neuroscience, from Eastern philosophers to their Western counterparts, this seminar explores what we talk about when we talk about God. [Thursdays, 2-5pm, Prof. Y. al-Kaysani & Prof. N. di Genova. Max. enrollment: 10 students.]

    “I’m kind of intrigued by this one here that’s just called ‘God,’” she said tentatively.

    Professor Scythia’s eyebrows shot up. “Oh? Why that one?”

    -

    OR, college senior Nile takes a very unusual seminar, made even stranger by the fact that the two professors teaching it seem to utterly despise each other.
